2009 Skillsusa National Week of Service … Together, Let’s Make A Difference Reminder
SkillsUSA students and teachers nationwide are asked to lend their technical expertise and leadership skills to help others during the SkillsUSA National Week of Service, scheduled for May 3-9, 2009. The annual event is conducted in honor of the May 8 anniversary of the founding of SkillsUSA. The SkillsUSA National Week of Service shines a spotlight on our dedication to serving others while showcasing the skills of career and technical education students who are learning to become tomorrow’s leaders.
Many SkillsUSA chapters are already participating in local community service projects. What we ask is that you hold an event during the week of May 3-9. By coordinating hundreds of events to be held during the same week, SkillsUSA has the potential to command nationwide attention.
We’re offering a SkillsUSA gift item to all chapter advisors who send in a brief report on their community service activities held during May 3-9. They need to let us know in a paragraph or two about what their chapter did to help their community, and we’ll send them a gift to say thanks for keeping us informed. Reports are due by May 31. Digital photos are also encouraged with your report.
For planning materials, go to www.skillsusa.org/events/service.shtml
Please e-mail reports and photos of your community service efforts to Karen Perrino, SkillsUSA director of marketing, at email@example.com. Please be sure to include your full name, school name and address, a daytime telephone number and all of the project details.
